Keppra . . .?
Is there anyone that is taking Keppra that can give me some insight on it? I was just wondering what type of side effects it has, is it a med that you would recomend to someone, has it actually helped at all, etc. Any information would help alot. Thanks. Asked by Tinisha Marshbanks 2 months ago.

Keppra is very helpful with those that happen to have generalized seizures. I would personally do research about the drugs before you talk with your doc about what meds to use. I have been on Keppra for 6 months...the side effects I have had with Keppra have been like no other AED drug I have ever experienced. I have rage that simply comes from no where, I get pissed off easier, sad enough..to say this but I don't care if I hurt people, I really don't give a damn to what I do or say. This drug definitly can create anti-social behavior very quickly. I take 1000 mg a day. I personally wouldn't recommand this drug for childern under 18. I am very active, I run, bike, swim, so have ways to relase this negitive energy. I don't have my driver license, but I use my road and MTB bikes to get everywhere...and I race them as well. This drug cost me 251 dollars out of pocket, but with insurance I am able to get it for 41 bucks. It's a deep cost...but it helps me, I don't have as bad memory, and it personally works for me. I've also used Trileptal, Depokate, and Depokote ER...those do not help control my seizures. I have idopathic Generalized Seizures disorder aka Epilepsy. Depokote makes my attitude feel nutral, I gained 15 pounds which doesn't help when your an endurance athlete, and BAD hair loss, I had break though seizures with depokote.Trileptal makes my memory even more horrid than it already is, and I had bad jerks, and also involentary eye movements taking trileptal. Also, I have now had epilepsy for 10 years... Hope this is insightful.... good luck I have had two friend that have died from seizures, so please do take meds for seizures. I cannot believe I am saying this but...AED drugs can give you a better chance from having a seizure and dying from it. Answered by Maegan Petrash 2 months ago.

I took Keppra for about a year, and I have to say, when the doctor told me I could start coming off of it (I'm fully off of it now), it was the happiest moment of my life. Keppra really changed my entire personality. I did a lot of things while on Keppra that I'd never have done normally--I had severe anger problems, severe depression...before I went on Keppra I was NEVER angry, and when I was on Keppra I threw a chair, smashed my favorite things, tore up a letter from my best friend, tore up stories I wrote, tore up favorite books...I cried extremely easily and often for no reason at all, and it was very maddening because I'm just not an angry or depressed person and I didn't know what to do. I got a C in my first class when before I had been a straight A student, I couldn't remember anything. Between the anger and depression and the memory problems, I don't know which was worse. I wouldn't remember a conversation I'd just had with someone, I wouldn't remember having watched a movie or read a book, I wouldn't remember entire days. I'd almost say I'd rather have another seizure than ever have to go back on that drug again. I ruined so many relationships and things in my life that can never really be fixed, and it was completely uncontrollable--I tried so hard to control it and never could. I actually still had seizures on my first dose of Keppra too, so my doctor had to up the dosage. If your doctor is thinking of putting you on Keppra, please ask him to find some other medicine.

Has anyone Heard of the Medicine Keppra?
It is for Seizure and i wondering about side affects. Thanks for answering. Asked by Emmaline Rouzer 2 months ago.

Keppra® is a medicine that is used with other medicines to treat primary generalized tonic-clonic seizures in adults and children 6 years of age and older with idiopathic generalized epilepsy, myoclonic seizures in patients 12 years of age and older with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, and partial onset seizures in patients 4 years of age and older with epilepsy. Keppra® is generally well tolerated but may not be for everyone. Keppra® may cause extreme sleepiness, tiredness, weakness or problems with muscle coordination. You should call your health care provider right away if you experience any of these problems or if you experience mood and behavior changes such as aggression, agitation, anger, anxiety, apathy, mood swings, depression, hostility, and irritability. A few people may get psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, and unusual behavior. A few people may get thoughts of suicide. The most common side effects with Keppra in adults are sleepiness, weakness, dizziness, and infection. In children, the most common side effects are sleepiness, accidental injury, hostility, irritability, and weakness. Answered by Loraine Koyanagi 2 months ago.

Some have to take Keppra for the rest of their lives because the body might have a seizure anytime and Keppra protects the body from that. Different people have different side effects from it while some don't any. If you skip or mess up your dosage of Keppra for a certain amount of time (like more than 2 weeks) then there is a high chance you will end up with a seizure because your body isn't stable or in shock from the mess up of Keppra quantities/ dosage. The reason your body goes in shock or seizure is to protect your body for abnormalities happening to it. If you want to stop taking the drug, you want to get the consent from you doctor or have a substituted drug for your seizures or whatever cause you are taking Keppra. Good Luck!! I hope the best for you. :) Answered by Rob Allbones 2 months ago.

Keppra and very strange dreams?!?
I have been increased by 1000mg a day to make 3000mg and I have woken up twice in my sleep laughing and talking and also have VERY strange dreams. Anyone else? Asked by Tamisha Soles 2 months ago.

FYI about Keppra and what happened to me...all meds react differently to each person, this is just my story. Not looking for best answer, just wanted to share this with you. I have mental illnesses and disorders that I have lived and suffered with for over 25 years. (Borderline Peronality Disorder and Histrionic traits, Bipolar II Ultradian Rapid cycling with Psychotic features) It is believed the Lithium is the cause of the onset of the epilespy. Anyway the doctor put me on Keppra into the first week I knew something wasn't right with myself, I was acting different. I hated everything, everyone. Nothing pleased me, everything got on my nerves, weird, off the wall dreams. I called my doctor and he said to give the Keppra at least 4 weeks. Into the second week my fiance was ready to take his ring back. My mood swings were intense! I looked up the side effects of Keppra online and this is what I got...pretty scary stuff if you ask me... Keppra may cause the following serious problems in adults. Call your healthcare provider right away if you get any of the following symptoms: extreme sleepiness, tiredness, and weakness problems with muscle coordination (problems walking and moving) mood and behavior changes such as aggression, agitation, anger, anxiety, apathy, mood swings, depression, hostility, and irritability A few people may get psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that are really not there), delusions (false or strange thoughts or beliefs) and unsual behavior. A few people may get thoughts of suicide. At 2 1/2 weeks I took myself to the nearest ER. I was thinking of killing myself. Even thought of ways of killing myself. I also took myself off Keppra. Called my doctor and he was on vacation for 3 weeks and all I got was an answering service. I was in the hospital for 7 days. They put me on Topamax, and I feel TONS better. I've been on the Topamax for 2 months and feel right as rain! Please be careful when using Keppra. Just like with all meds not everyone reacts the same to the same medication. Just be aware of the side effects that could happen. Sorry for any type o's Hugs, Lesli Answered by Ferdinand Dewald 2 months ago.


I'm taking keppra for seizures, is it normal for keppra to lower sex drive?
Asked by Takako Misiak 2 months ago.

Keppra has now been used by at least 100,000 people, and it appears to be very safe. In the earliest tests, people who took it as an add-on to another seizure medicine were only slightly more likely to quit because of side effects than people who took a placebo (a pill with no active medicine) instead. Some side effects that have been reported include: sleepiness loss of strength and energy dizziness anxiety nervousness irritability other mood changes Some of these are more likely during the first month of treatment. If you notice any of these problems, call the doctor's office. Sometimes the doctor can help by changing the amount of Keppra you take or how you take it. Don't stop taking Keppra or change the amount you take without the doctor's guidance. Some people have reported helpful effects from Keppra. They say they can think and concentrate better and feel more alert. It's hard to be sure whether these benefits are from the Keppra or from having fewer and less severe seizures. If you have just started taking Keppra (or have just started taking a larger amount), be careful doing anything that might be dangerous until you know whether you are feeling sleepy, dizzy, or uncoordinated. Allergic reactions There are no known allergic reactions to Keppra. Long-term side effects The long-term side effects of Keppra are not yet known. Answered by Viva Hy 2 months ago.

Side-Effects - What to Watch Out For This is an alphabetical list of side-effects that Keppra can cause. You may not get any of these side-effects, but you may get some. While you are taking Keppra, these are the things you should watch out for: * Abnormal thinking * Accidental injury * Aggression * Anger * Agitation * Anxiety * Appetite - decrease or loss of appetite * Asthenia * Behaviour changes * Bleeding - unexplained bleeding * Bruising - unexplained bruising * Confusion * Coordination - difficulty with coordination * Coughing * Depression (including suicidal thoughts and actions) * Diarrhoea * Dizziness * Double vision * Dyspepsia * Emotional instability * Exaggerated movements * Getting infections more often than usual * Hallucinations * Hair loss (reversible on stopping medication) * Headache * Hostility * Insomnia * Irritability * Memory - difficulty with memory or thinking * Nausea * Nervousness * Personality disorders * Psychosis * Rash or rashes * Seizures - loss of seizure control or change in the character of the seizure * Sleepiness * Sore throat * Tiredness * Tremor * Vertigo * Vomiting If you have any of the above, it may be due to the medicine. Read the PIL that comes with your medicine for more information. If you did not get a PIL with your medicine, ask your pharmacist for one. If you feel unwell or are worried, contact your prescriber, pharmacist or nurse at once. Do not waste any time if you feel very ill. Your prescriber may decide to change the dose or stop you from having this medicine again. If you cannot contact your prescriber, call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47.

Well, you mentioned your self that he's a intercourse addict. So certainly he feels the must get off plenty, definitely that's why he masturbated. If he does not get it from you, he'll move do it himself. If that relatively bothers you actually I could get a divorce with him. A "typical" man that wasn't hooked on intercourse could simply wait till you're now not there to masturbate. Clearly if he is going into the toilet when you rejected him, he definitely can't aid himself/ does not care what you suppose. Now you already know his real person, so make a alternative whether or not or now not you wish to be with him. Answered by Latasha Fyock 2 months ago.

I am not sure of the side effect it has but if you are taking a combination of drugs along with your keppra then yes it could have that kind of side effect. Also having epilepsy can have its own side effects. Please talk to your current physician.. Answered by Cherilyn Dobrinski 2 months ago.

I could concentrate better, wasn't always depressed, frustrated or giddy... then I got a rash and now I'm being switched to Keppra. They aren't sure the rash is even from Lamictal and I'm pretty disappointed about it because I liked Lamictal. However, does anyone know how Keppra might affect me differently? I'm in college and I've heard it interferes with academic performance, memory etc. I'm worried and I little POed because I miss the way Lamictal made me feel - normal.

Keppra made me a little aggressive at first, but then it evened me out really nicely. The only thing you might do is start taking a multivitamin because Keppra can leech out your b vitamins, folic acid, vit d.... I can't really compare it to Lamictal though. Lamictal made me so sick I couldn't take it. I also take Depakote with it now too and it's a perfect combo for me. I would recommend you try it for a while yourself. People react differently to meds.

What happens if i overdose on keppra xr?
what happens if i overdose on keppra xr nd drink alcohol with it? Asked by Vanna Crosley 2 months ago.

If you are taking Keppra for seizures, good chance you will break through with seizures if you add alcohol. Keppra Overdose: An Introduction Keppra® (levetiracetam) is a prescription medication used to treat certain types of seizures in people with epilepsy. The effects of a Keppra overdose can vary depending on a number of factors, including the Keppra dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications, alcohol, or street drugs. If you happen to overdose on Keppra, seek immediate medical attention. Symptoms of a Keppra Overdose If a person overdoses on Keppra, the symptoms can vary. Some commonly reported symptoms of a Keppra overdose include: •Drowsiness •Agitation •Aggression •Unconsciousness •Difficulty breathing •Coma. Life-threatening overdose symptoms are more likely if Keppra is combined with alcohol or other medications. Treating a Keppra Overdose The treatment for a Keppra overdose will vary. If the overdose was recent, the healthcare provider may use certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment also involves supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For example, supportive treatment options may include: •Fluids through an intravenous line (IV) •Close monitoring of the heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing •Other treatments based on the complications that occur. It is important that you seek medical attention immediately if you believe that you may have overdosed on Keppra. Answered by Dortha Shumsky 2 months ago.

Keppra Overdose Answered by Tomas Sucgang 2 months ago.

My knowledge is limited, but here is the difference to my understanding. Keppra XR is for extended release. My neurologist has me take keppra twice daily (morning and evening) to keep the level of medication in my system fairly level and consistent. I was told taking a dosage of Keppra twice daily would not have the same affect as taking both pills at once (eg: only taking the medication in the morning). My neurologist then told me that Keppra XR extends the release period so it is possible to take the entire dosage in the morning, instead of taking it in a 'twice daily' dosage. I was also told that it has one other significant difference. It is more expensive. Also, a generic version is not available yet. So, this may or may not allow you to save money with health insurance. I was told that the performance of keppra and keppra XR are about the same. Answered by Tish Hottle 2 months ago.

Is keppra dangerous for my child?
Asked by Heike Findlen 2 months ago.

Keppra is a common seizure medication. If your doctor prescribed it, then I'm guessing it was done because your child has seizures. All medications come with side effects, but what's worse, the keppra or seizures? If you have questions about the medication/diagnosis talk to your doctor. Write down all your questions before the appointment so you don't forget. My mom used very high doses of keppra for a brain tumor, but that was prescribed by doctors at the mayo clinic. For her she needed it because it controlled the seizure activity, some which was in the brain and not seen as a normal seizure. It was important for her to continue with the medication. Answered by Noriko Blissett 2 months ago.

Depending on how much keppra is needed to help the epilepsy, then it isn't dangerous. As long as the child isn't overdosed, then it fine. The doctor will know the correct amount without being overdosed. Answered by King Grauel 2 months ago.

Can you get high off Keppra?
Its a sedative and i was given it for seziures but someone told me they tripped on it Asked by Robbi Abed 2 months ago.

Keppra is not a sedative drug, in fact it has essentially no sedative potential at all. It's an extremely potent anti-seizure drug that is generally not regarded as a first line therapy. It's generally only brought out when several other drugs have failed - this used to be because it was rather expensive, but since several generic versions have hit the market, and generics of it don't suffer from therapeutic index and kinetic problems that other seizure medication generics do it's starting to be used a bit more. It doesn't strike me as even possible for someone to get high over it. Most overdoses tend to be extremely mild before sharply dipping into the range of unconciousness or violent delirium. It has no pharmacological properties that would produce a high in any sense of the word. But you know, people will say they get high off cat urine and snort paint thinner mixed with pixie sticks these days. Answered by Tawana Luss 2 months ago.

It actually sounds like Az R is a person either in then medical field or a pharmacy tech. However, if you go and do a little research, its not just one person saying that they get high... its multiple... and even in the epilepsy forums people are saying that you get a warm feeling with euphoria. So... I think its safe to say that yes you CAN get a "high" feeling from over taking Keppra Answered by Sheena Knoblauch 2 months ago.

I know I m late to the party but I wanted to add my two pennies worth because I disagree with the answers here. It can t get you high in the sense of tripping or being euphoric or anything like that. However, depending how you respond to it, strong doses of 1-3g can inhibit your nervous system. It affectively makes you feel numb, spaced out, dizzy, wobbly, super tired and sluggish (sometimes to the extent you cannot get out of bed). It also kills any ability you may have had to feel emotions. So while its not something you can use as a "party drug high" it definitely has potential for abuse by people who experience sensory overload or emotional overload or people who are suffering with depression and anxiety. You build tolerance to it quite quickly though, so this would probably only work a handful of times. You d have to keep increasing the dose and once you get past 3g there is no evidence that it affects you any differently until you get to lethal doses (60+ grams in one sitting).

Keppra XR and Keppra are the same drug. The difference is in the formulation. XR means extended release, meaning keppra XR is designed to release the drug at a steady rate so that you don't have to take it as often (usually you take XR once per day). As long as the pharmacist gave you enough of the regular Keppra so that you are able to take it twice per day and not run out, the chances of you getting breakthrough seizures is very low. Answered by Cody Driskill 2 months ago.

Do not stop taking Keppra XR® or any other seizure medicine unless instructed by your doctor. Stopping medication all at once can cause seizures that will not stop (status epilepticus), a very serious problem. Discontinuing seizure medication without a doctor’s guidance is one of the major reasons people who have been seizure-free begin having new seizures. Answered by Lacey Kines 2 months ago.

Not too long after I started abilify and cymbalta for depression. I cannot stop gaining weight! I recently got off the abilify to see if that's what was causing the weight gain but it doesn't appear to be it. Now I'm working my way off the cymbalta (my doc is having me do this super slowly).

Keppra doesn't make people gain weight. It is probably one of your other medications. Lamictal might have some involvement in your weight gain but not a lot. If you're taking medicine but aren't working out, then you will gain a lot, but if you're working out and taking Keppra, Keppra won't make you gain any weight. The other medications might make you gain weight, but I'm not familiar with them so I won't say anything about them. Answered by Dona Irie 2 months ago.
